It’s the time of year for celebrating with friends and enjoying all that the holiday season has to offer. One of my favorite activities of the Christmas season is planning dinner parties with family friends, and this year I’m planning my parties with easy DIY Holiday Party Supplies using my Martha Stewart Cricut Explore Air 2, available exclusively at Michaels. It has been an exciting year at Pineapple Paper Co., partly due to the amazing opportunity I’ve had in sharing projects using my Martha Stewart Cricut Machine. Since April of this year, I’ve been sharing simple, yet stunning projects that you can make at home with your Cricut. I have styled an incredible Magical Unicorn Party, an Outdoor Peach party, a Cake Topper, a simple Dinosaur birthday party favor, and a reverse canvas that is one of my favorite projects from the campaign. I absolutely love having the Martha Stewart machine in my craft room! It can cut over 100 different materials, from cardstock, vinyl and iron-on to specialty materials like glitter paper, cork, and bonded fabric. Not only is it a powerful machine, it is gorgeous! It comes in a lustrous vanilla pearl finish with brushed gold accents and a set of coordinating tools.
When I saw the amazing black, white, and gold Martha Stewart Celebrations products from Michaels, I knew that I wanted to do something other than just style an expected New Years Party. I decided to incorporate red and green using simple DIY Christmas Poinsettia decor with the Martha Stewart Celebrations party items. Create a stunning DIY Holiday Table with several projects you can make on your own.
Create Holiday Party Decorations and Supplies with your Martha Stewart Cricut
One of my favorite projects from the DIY Holiday Table were these “Merry” Ornaments in a modern Black and White pattern to match the Martha Stewart Celebrations place settings, available exclusively at Michaels. Black and white party decor is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE, and the gold touches make the Martha Stewart party supplies look so expensive, even though they are paper!
The Black and White DIY “Merry” Ornaments are made with a simple black vinyl design placed on a white ornament and tied with a bold red ribbon. The “Merry” script is an available image in Cricut Design Space! Click the link below the picture to go directly to the Cricut Design Space file. They can be used to decorate your table, but also double as a take home Holiday Party Favor for your guests!

I crafted 3D paper poinsettias to place on Swiss dot straws from the Martha Stewart Celebrations line. They dress up an otherwise boring glass.
My favorite DIY party supply to make are paper napkins with Iron On Vinyl designs. Personalized napkins are SO expensive to purchase, and when you can make your own from inexpensive paper napkins and Iron On (and since they’re small, you can use scraps leftover from previous projects!)

The simple but classic “Merry” script makes an appearance on the napkins – I love how professional they look!
I have to share a picture of the most adorable little Poinsettia cakes that I purchased from my favorite bakery: Oakmont Bakery just outside of Pittsburgh. Aren’t they just perfect for Christmas parties!?
I also made this simple but stunning Modern Poinsettia Hoop Wreath to use as a backdrop for my table. With just a few crafting supplies and your Martha Stewart Cricut, you can create this DIY Hoop Wreath as well!
How to Make a Modern Christmas Poinsettia Hoop Wreath
This Poinsettia wreath that I used as a decoration behind my Holiday table is absolutely gorgeous and is really easy to make! You can make many variations of this wreath, depending on the size and number of the flowers and berries, so be creative!
Supplies Needed to Make Modern Christmas DIY Hoop Wreath
-Metal Hoop Wreath (I purchased a 14″ metal hoop for just a few dollars at my local Michaels)
-Hot Glue Gun
Open the Poinsettia Hoop Wreath Design in Cricut Design Space:
Click to Make: Martha Stewart Christmas Decor Hoop Wreath
All of the flowers and berries are sized to fit a 14″ metal hoop wreath. If you would like to size the whole design to fit a different sized hoop, just click the “Select All” button and drag the bounding box to size.
The poinsettia is a beautiful design by Anna Griffin. There are a few 3D poinsettia designs in Cricut Design Space, but I love this now!
When you’re ready to cut all of the pieces, click “Make It.”
The design uses 5 colors of glitter cardstock, so Cricut Design Space prompts you to prep 5 mats.
Select “Glitter Cardstock” as your material.
(Note: to do a test cut on the Glitter cardstock, cut a small square in the corner of a cardstock sheet and adjust settings as needed.)
When all of the pieces are done, it looks like a lot, but it really isn’t!
I would also recommend cleaning your fine point blade after cutting the glitter cardstock, as the glitter pieces tend to stick to the blade.
Match up and layer all of the paper poinsettia pieces and prep to glue them together with the hot glue gun.
Glue all of the flower pieces together, leaving the leaves to attach directly onto the hoop wreath.
I love how pretty the flowers look all glue together.
Attach the flowers to the metal hoop and then attach the leaves, branches, and berries to create your desired look.
Add a ribbon, and hang on the wall (or on a door). I love how this turned out! I plan on using it throughout the winter months, as well.
